    I'm Addicted To Chessmaster

    There is this game for the PC called Chessmaster, and I can't stop playing it. I got it from a bargin rack in a shopping superstore, I forget which store. It includes a huge amount of tournement-level tutorials, of which I've barely scratched the surface, and a really good...

    Chess Is Perfect.

    To me, playing chess is the ultimate experience. It is 64 perfect squares, and 32 pieces, that can never change, they can never be altered, the knight will always move in an "L" shape, the bishop will always move diagonally, etc. Whenever I do anything, whether it's watch a movie...

    A friend's 7 year old daughter taught me how to

    play chess! And then I taught my own teenager how to play. I rarely won against my pint-size teacher, and now my son takes me to the cleaners as well. Kids are brutal sometimes, haha! I start every game with the statement "Ok, no more chances for you!" But we both know I'm...

    Ah, When It Started

    I remember learning chess from reading it in a book, and making my own set out of K'nex and a pizza box I checkered in with a pencil. Eventually I got a glass set and I love it. Still one of my favorite games!

    A Chequered Past

    I've always had a strange fascination with Chess. For as long as I can remember, the board has held a strangely enigmatic appeal to me. I remember feeling so envious of the people who had a seemingly natural talent for the game, because despite my intrigue I was totally lacking...
